Congratulations on all of the PRs that we’ve been seeing! The Level Method seems to be working! We will revisit the testing cycle again in May. Mostly, it will look like you’re doing a regular workout, but you’ll have the opportunity to Level Up!

So far, we have the following members with their overall levels:

Vicky, Rhonda, Trish , Carolyn, Brian, Tyler, and Tonya. If you’ve got all of the testing done, and your name isn’t here, get into the app and LOG IT!!

The TV slides now have (in the upper right hand corner) what level you should use to decide on your color for that workout. Trust the method and stick with the recommendation: your overall fitness will improve the fastest this way! In addition, the coaches will be able to tell you how many rounds or what time you should expect to aim for. The Level Method Gym is 2 weeks ahead of everyone and they let us know what to shoot for.

This group is for members AND non-members. You’ll be able to share our events directly. Add friends who you think would be interested in free recipes, tips from our dietitian, and gym events! We will still have our private group, where the workouts will be posted. The button above will take you to the NEW group.

That is… Eastern Shore Affiliate Challenge #18. CrossFit Affiliates will battle it out again but not with light sabres. Wall balls, double unders, snatches, and everything barbell will be the tools of destruction. The competition happens May the Fourth at CrossFit Salisbury. We’ve got a few teams going down to represent Nation, so show your support and cheer us on!

And speaking of competitions, the image below is Carolyn Helmly.. If you don’t know her (she’s part of the 5:30 am Breakfast Club) , know this: she placed 128th out of over 3500 women who actively competed in the CrossFit Open in the 55-59 age group. This score earns her a place in the online Qualifier, which is the next step to the CrossFit Games. Only the fittest of the fit and the most dedicated get to be where Carolyn is. CONGRATULATIONS!!! We will be following her journey through the next phase, which begins in May. Maybe we can get some workout buddies to do the Qualifiers with her!

We are hosting Whisky’s Warriors 5k September 21. Register here:

The purpose of the Whiskey's Warriors 5k is to help pet owners who cannot afford, or fall short of the funds necessary to help pay for their pets' surgerie, or to pay for the surgery of rescue pets who would have otherwise not been adopted, due to health issues. 

The proceeds from this event will go to the Talbot Humane Society to help cover the cost for pets, and their owners, who find themselves in this situation. 


That’s all for now, folks! Questions, Comments, Concerns? Send me a text, catch me in person, or call (we can still do that) 410-324-6945
